The issue with the car ia that it wants to tuen off to save the battery. There is precious little time.

Note to anyone who will be doing this...there is an option on the main menu to do a readiness test.

Do that before attempting to Flash a tune because if the car has never had a Flash before the readiness test must be done.

At that point you can turn the car off and turn it on again to auxiliary and then Flash with peace of mind.

At first, I saw a bunch of lights on the dash and I was a bit nervous, but all was fine after the flash.

Not going to lie - first time flashing is a nail biting experience. If you have a trickle charger handy - use it as your battery will take a serious hit when it starts the flash and those fans start spinning.

Alot of people say to also pull the fan relay which can cause a low battery.
where is this fan relay exactly?

I have lithium battery with a special charger, but dont want to hassle with it. I will pull the fan relay though if someone points me to it.

I always turn on the flashers while flashing a tune. It keeps the car from going into power saving mode. I also make sure that the battery is topped off before starting the process.

I have about half a tank of 101 octane and 91 octane so about 95 or 96 octane. And I just did a quick run with breakboosting I did not time it but I can tell you that it feels a tad quicker than running with AJB4 and 100 octane.

In your Fuse, Fusible Link and Relay Box, you'll find cooling fan relay 1. However, the wiring diagram shows for the high output VR30, a second cooling fan relay and control module. Evidently, the HO engine controls the fans individually. The LO engine only has one relay and one control module for both fan motors. I can't find where the second relay is located.

Perhaps pull the fuses for the fan motors instead?

hmm...if it is not too much trouble, which fuse/fuses would that be?

They are fuse "T" (50A) and "U" (50A) in fusible link holder #2 by the battery. This is all I could find:

Is that with an Ecutek tune or JB4?
ecutek ots 91.

ams intakes, gthaus exgaust, hx and coolant exp tank.

i sent the logs to AMS and asked them to give it a once over.

I should have run it the opposite direction as well, but I wanted to get the hell out of Mexico asap.

Hey Jodedor , answer a question for me, I hear that many of you that live close to the Mexican border go over to do street racing. What happens if the Mexican Police stop's anyone, do you make it back to the states.

Would like to see how that compares with a Dragy. I would have expected quicker being AWD and an Ecutek tune.

no dragy...email address, profile, etc.

If I am DWP...I may do a stock tune run on same Mexican road on a similar day...sunny 63 degrees.

probably the same thing that happens to the Canadians who venture into Mexico for similar runs 😉
